My family toured Cape Town, Table Mountain, and Robben Island with Clive and we had an outstanding experience. Clive is very organized and experienced. He was right on-time and had planned our day to maximize our time with minimum time spent standing in lines. I would highly recommend Clive!

My husband and I booked South Africa for our honeymoon in March 2015. Our travel agent put us in contact with Clive, and we’re SO grateful she did. From the moment Clive picked us up from our hotel, we knew we were in for an incredible treat! We spent a day and a half touring around Cape Town and Clive,... More

My husband and I had a great time with Clive. He was very personable and knowledgeable, and he gave great service. We had three full days in Cape Town with him, plus airport transfers. He made everything easy, researched a unique place we wanted to visit, gave restaurant recommendations, and made sure our trip was as successful as possible. He... More

We had the good fortune of seeing Cape Town and the Peninsula with Clive. Everything about the tour was flawless. Clive's encyclopaedic knowledge of his city and country and his ability to condense a huge amount of beauty, knowledge and hidden gems of the area along with his engaging manner and individual attention made the tour par excellence and added...

2 years ago my brother and his wife used the services of Clive and Godfrey and as it was my first visit to Cape Town, they recommended them to us. From the time of handling of the enquiry, the service was excellent and a non standard tour of the winelands to cover wine tasting for me and art and shopping... More

We booked a private tour of the Cape peninsula on our last day in South Africa. From the moment Clive picked us up to the end of the day...it was a fantastic trip. Not only is Clive highly knowledgable of the area, but his grasp of South African history and the complex nature of South African demographics added to a... More

This review is long overdue as we hired Clive as a tour guide during our honeymoon in April 2014. Clive drove us around for two days. The first day we went on The Cape Point Tour: Cape Point, the Cape of Good Hope, an AMAZING seafood lunch, as well as a trip to Boulders Beach to see the Penguin Colony.... More

Clive and Godfrey were excellent, and went far above and beyond to meet our needs when we were unexpectedly delayed and a member of our party experienced mobility problems that made it difficult for him keep up with the rest of us. Clive provided loads of useful information and historical context, and Godfrey's personal connection to Langa township made this... More

We booked a private tour of the Cape Point area with this company. We have only positive things to report, a friendly and professional service. Clive, the guide, had a detailed and broad knowledge of the area, geology, history, wildlife and plants. We would not hesitate to us this operation in the future.
